Easier than expected. However, I still missed quite a few. The columns were just barely too tall to fit on my screen without having to scroll down to see the endings. I should have closed some of my toolbars.

Most of it is people just not having enough time (the percentages decrease the farther down you go in the table). I know all of these but only got 87. Definitely could have finished with an extra minute, but I accept the challenge to finish in only 3!

The only time I stop the timer is when I get a phone call or a visitor in the middle of a quiz. Did I read somewhere that stopping the timer keeps that quiz from counting on the stats? Or did I dream that?

Doesn't matter. The new design doesn't let you stop the timer. You can pause the timer, but only three times per quiz.

I get a really weird result:
You scored 118/125 = 100%.
This beats or equals 100% of test takers
How is it possible to get 118 out of 125 and to have 100%?

Hi, Quizmaster.... Even after reading your comment above regarding being able to stop the timer it still took me 10 minutes to find it. The unlabeled gray box with the tiny arrow does not cry out "click me", and I never even noticed it was there. And once I had finally found it, I still didn't see the words "Stop Timer" so I thought you were pulling our legs. It took another minute to realize that "Take Untimed" was the option I was looking for since I was still doggedly searching for the words "Stop Timer". Otherwise I like the new format.

Is it even possible to get them all in time? No room for typos and you d have to be a speed typer. And yes I know it is a timed quiz ( and therefore it should be hard to get them all in time, but still i would say it could use some more time. Cause at full speed without typos it would still be a close call, which would turn it into a typing contest. I would say ther would have to be atleast 10 secs reserved for typos, or thinking. And scrolling to make it fit into your screen...)

Only missed Tin (Sn), Antimony (Sb), Mercury (Hg - I should've known that one) and Tungsten (W). For most of the others I simply typed in the first letter of the full name of the element and then the next letter; if that did not work I deleted that letter and typed in the next letter in the name. Later on in the quiz I often skipped the second letter if it was a vowel (directly moving on to a consonant.

I really don't agree with the people who need more time. I know that I know the elements better than some people, but I ended with 43 seconds going at a leisurely pace. If you can't finish in time, chances are you need to brush up a tad. I know that if this was sporcle, I'd be voted into the ground, but I honestly feel like this is a git gud situation.
